DVSMC...

These software belongs to you and should not transfered when the system is sold.  This is the LEGAL aspect of the situation.

Now you are free to do what you want with them.

If you want to MOVE these apps on the new system, you would need a NULL modem cable and a little utility to tansfer all the data to the new system.

Hope this helped

For windows 95/98 the best utility to use with a Null modem cable is direct cable connection.  For windows 3.x there are two utilitiescalled intersvr and interlnk in your DOS directory which allow you to transfer information.
